The Restoration Authority designed a $12/year parcel tax to restore valuable wetlands in the 9-county Bay Area and placed it before voters on the June 2016 ballot, where it passed with 70% in favor. The parcel tax will raise about $25 million per year for 20 years, providing the first year-on-year funding that will allow for long-term restoration work. It is the first regional-scale parcel tax in California.
